How does NWO promote Open Science?
NWO is committed to take the lead in the transition to Open Science. Since 2009, NWO has strived to ensure that all publications it funds are openly available. In 2016, NWO introduced its research data management policy which aims to make research data generated as part of NWO funded projects as open and FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable en reusable) as possible. The transition to Open Science requires a change in the way researchers are assessed. NWO is committed to modernise the way academics are recognised and rewarded. Where possible, NWO supports Open Science infrastructures and services.
